Wool Week 2016

Last month we took part in The Campaign for Wool’s annual Wool Week celebrations and showcase: the Wool BnB.

A Georgian townhouse in the heart of Islington was transformed into a wooly Air BnB full of textiles, furniture and home accessories made from wool. The showcase featured textiles from a wide range of design houses and producers from Paul Smith to Melin Tregwynt, as well as a selection of our Wave Blankets and Pom Hats. Stylist Karina Garrick, has been working with CfW for many years and curated the entire show.

Wool Week is a series of events, exhibitions and happenings organised by the Campaign for Wool, an initiative to promote the use of wool as a natural, sustainable and superior fibre for everyday.
